Aurora, Ore., June 13, 2018—Life Flight Network, the largest not-for-profit air medical transport service in the United States, is celebrating its 40th anniversary and offering $40 new memberships in honor of its 40 years of service to communities across Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana.  

“Since 1978, Life Flight Network has provided air medical transport service to people in the Pacific Northwest, saving lives and saving valuable time when every second counts,” said Life Flight Network CEO Michael Griffiths. “It is our privilege to continue to serve the region alongside hospitals and the emergency response community.”

To celebrate its 40 years of service, Life Flight Network will offer $40 annual memberships—for new members only—for a limited time from June 13 through Labor Day, 2018. Memberships are not available in Montana due to state regulations.  Members incur no out-of-pocket expense if flown for medically necessary emergent conditions by Life Flight Network or one of their reciprocal partners. Membership covers the primary membership holder, their spouse or domestic partner, and dependents claimed on their income tax return. Elderly and disabled family members living in the same household can also be covered. Memberships are normally $65. To enroll, visit www.lifeflight.org/membership or call the Life Flight Network membership office at 800-982-9299.

Started in 1978 as Emanuel Life Flight, the program was owned and operated by Emanuel Hospital (now Legacy Emanuel Medical Center). Emanuel Life Flight was one of the first hospital-based air ambulances on the West Coast and only the fourth in the nation. Transporting 121 patients in its first year, a French-made Allouette-3 helicopter was the program’s inaugural aircraft.

Yachats Fire Chief Frankie Petrick activated the first Emanuel Life Flight transport. “In more than 40 years with the Yachats Fire Department, I’ve worked closely with Life Flight Network in situations where having access to air ambulance transport meant the difference between life and death,” said Petrick. “Life Flight Network has served our region well and since my first call to Emanuel Life Flight in 1978, they’ve always been there when we needed them.”

Today, Life Flight Network is a nationally recognized air medical transport service with more than 550 employees and 25 bases covering a large part of Oregon, Idaho, Washington, and Montana. Life Flight Network is still committed to its core mission – to serve the community by providing ICU-level critical care transportation to ill or injured patients in a safe, compassionate, efficient, and expeditious manner.

Life Flight Network recently released a new app called LFN Respond that allows hospitals and first responders to call for a life-saving air ambulance transport with the touch of a button. Using the app, hospital and emergency responders can instantly request a Life Flight Network aircraft by tapping the flight call button in the app, sending vital information and GPS location directly to dispatch personnel at Life Flight Network’s Communications Center

The consortium of Oregon Health & Science University, Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, and Providence Health & Services own Life Flight Network. The combined strength of these world-class health institutions ensures the quality of the program remains as safe and strong today as when it started in 1978.
